Very nice and very clean place. The first building was in maintenance but very nice, all in wood. The temple in the center is amazing. Small but very typical. Nice place to do pictures. One hour is enough to see all

The temple in the flatland reminds me of going catholic church. Truly a magnificent peace of Japan's cultural treasure.

Zuiryu-ji is located near Takaoka station,about 12 min. by walk.Very quiet and holly place made me feel released.Especially,my favorite place is Zazen space,where smelt cider wood,appriate for concentrating mindfullness. 瑞龍寺は高岡駅から歩いて12,13分ほどのところにあります。鎌倉時代のお寺で大変質素でありながら、静かで心休まる空間です。坐禅の部屋はヒノキの香りが漂っていて、とても集中できそうです。
